. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and
on the people of israel, bill clinton, george w. bush, comes as president, cold in nature, was distancing himself to israel. the message the israelis got across the spectrum was he doesn't like us. he doesn't talk to us. and he doesn't care about us. >> rose: that's the perception in israel. >> that is corct. and of coue it was reinforced by the fact that almost simultaneously to his election israel chose the right wing prime minister who replaced olmert who was wing to go a long distin to make a palestinian deal. >> rose: and before that barak. >> an before that ariel sharon who took a bold step in gaa -- gaza. so the israeli, the israeli political system responded to threats to the threat of iran, to the threat of hezbollah, israel, between 2006 and 2009, went to the right. both the public opinion and the government. so the drama of the collision between the president seeking to draw close to arab and muslims and israeli government veering to the right, intensified the tension that manifested itself at the time. and add to this the fact that between the president and the prime minister
and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the single most important arab leader in the peace process if something happens. now president perez, he spoke about the peace process after the president spoke. >> we long to see an end to the conflict with the palestinians, to see the palestinians enjoying fraed freedom and prosperity in their own state. we extend o
for senate. politico reports that former president bill clinton and other big-name democrats are trying to get someone else to run against mitch mcconnell in kentucky. one of the names emerging is 34-year-old allison lundergan grimes, the kentucky secretary of state. ashley judd hasn't even said she's decided to run. >>> they're calling it a vote-a-rama. in the chamber that's usually slow to move. senators will be allowed to offer unlimited amendments to the budget. >>> attorney general eric holder is back to work today after taking leave to do his civic duty. the former judge reported for jury duty yesterday. he was dismissed. >>> and a new children's book teaches kids about the national debt. now, the villain in "mr. penny and the dragon of domeville" is a dragon that eats money, designed to represent a bloated federal government. the author says he wants to remind kids and their families that the country is in trouble. >>> and if you read only one thing this morning, a lot of pundits have predicted the new pope, francis, may surprise people. well, today the "new york times" reports o
-mail sent to the former secretary of state hillary clinton. other reported targets include colin powell's facebook page and e-mails of the bush family. a shadowy figure is said to be behind the hacking. we're trying to figure out just what is going on, just who the guccifer as it is pronounced is. brian todd is walking into the situation room right now. you've been looking into the story. what are you finding out? >> this is a very mysterious figure and he has the u.s.'s best investigators after him. we have confirmed as wolf mentioned this afternoon the secret service is investigating the hacks of e-mails sent to hillary clinton by a former aide. experts worry the perpetrator may start to target e-mails mrs. clinton, herself, and others will send. a hacker who is reported to have broken into correspondence involving former presidents apparently has found a new target. confidential memos to hillary clinton from a former aide have been hacked according to the website smoking gun. the secret service says it is investigating. smoking gun says it has been in touch with the hacker known as g
wrong during the bush administration, it was wrong during the clinton administration. if you look at theti intele the very end of president bill clt's administration, they were talking also about saddam building up his w.m.d.s. >> rose: what was the error ofwa intelligence? why did they believe that? >> it was a tbawrl off imagination-- it was a failure of imagination. i was writing about the intelligence at the time and i myself thought some of it might have been valid when i was writing about it. really what happened is saddam cooperated with a letter of the united nations demands. he let inspectors go here and there, but he never cooperated with the spirit of it. and he was trying to maintain ambiguity over what he actually ha because he was concerned, first and foremost biran, which doesan have w.m.d., and he was trying to repress his own population. he had used poison gas against the kurds. he didn't want internal factions to know he didn't have it. he maintained a big of ambiguity about it. and even hans blinx wrote he thought he must be having something. the failure of imag
weapons ban passed in 1994 and that required a lot of arm twisting on the part of president bill clinton on members of his own part for exactly this reason, because there are a lot of democrats and in a lot of red states with very big gun cultures and significant opposition to gun control measures that clinton really had to work every bit of political capital he had to get that done in '94. barack obama has shown, even though they gave all of these remarks in the state of the union address and elsewhere, megyn, that he's just not willing to pick up that fight and die on this particular hill. harry reid looks at his caucus and says, look, i've got 55 democrats in my senate caucus here. i can't get 40 votes for this. i've got a number of very vulnerable democrats coming up in red states like alaska, arkansas, louisiana. >> megyn: north carolina. >> west virginia, north carolina, montana for example, i don't want them dying on this hill and i'm going to strip it out. have it voted on, they will vet a vote, and on an amendment and that means the death of the ban. >> megyn: even dianne feinst
is expected of me? i will never forget a trip i took to -- right after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. if they are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? i expect you will have, there will end up being serious conversations in private that are much mo
president clinton signed in 1996 which bans federal marry i marital bs for same sex couples legally married in their states. you said that states have the right to de. to the is conservative isn't marriage a state issue and federal interferences wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> i don't think so and neither did a democratic president. a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full court blitz by the popular culture by elites, by all kinds of folks to intimidate and cower people and no longer defend marriage as being between a man and a woman. >> chris. >> chris: go ahead, nicolle. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base self-describing evangelical christians under the age of 33 support marriage eequality. 80% of people in this country right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage equality. more than 60% of all americans everyone supports marriage equality. and that very same activist court that he railed against with such hostility this morning alway
american presidents who have shown up in israel, clinton went four times. >> right. >> bush went in 2008. they went in a moment that they were on the cusp of israeli -- >> and the president's coming to close a deal. >> ambassador, i'll have you hold that thought because i'm going to take you right now to the president who is being introduced. they are inside the residence there of shimon peres. let's take a listen to both gentlemen speak. >> president obama, it is a great privilege for me and for the people of israel to host you here in jerusalem. it was a real pleasure to sit with a true friend, very knowledgeable, unfortunately, and see that we can agree and discuss with you openly and freely. after the meeting we just had, i am with more confidence that your vision can be transformed the middle east. your vision is achievable. you arrived here already with an impressive record of answering our needs. particularly an unforgettabley n the domain of security. i want to thank you personally, dear friend, for the long days and for many long, sleepless nights that we know about them, which
, under reagan, and h.w. bush, and clinton. the difference is probably 1 million jobs relative to what is done in the past and now. we're missing one million government jobs retive to the histical norm -- >> rose: what's the difference? why is that true? >> it's true for two reasons. one is that states and locates almost inevitability have to cut back when time is tough. they lose tax revenues. they are mandated legally to run a balanced budget so at the time same time consumers and red soxes pull back the government is. in washington, starting in 2011, with the negotiations between the house republicans and the white houses, the house republicans have insisted on big cuts and have woniguts and that's why we have austerity and will have more this year. >> rose: if the fed wanted to reduce unemployment from seven to whatever it is-- seven. could they do that? do they have the tools to do that? >> no. i don't think so. they're down to incremental policies. i think they know that. ben bernanke and janet yellen, and otheres, are constantly arguing-- correct, i think-- but they tend to put
administrations and a former obama adviser as well. so clinton bush and obama, all of the above. first of all to you, jeffrey, your reaction to the speech today. you were there in the hall, the feeling from the young people. admittedly, more supportive of obama perhaps than the overall israeli public. >> maybe, but i mean many university students do lean right. most amazing thing about it for me was a huge ovation when president obama called for the creation of a palestinian state in different iterations and i was thinking when i was in there, if he had given that speak at an apec convention in washington, he might have been booed. i'm trying to imagine what arab audiences across the muslim world were thinking when they saw israelis cheer obama for calling, for palestinian state. it was kind of a brief moment of possibility there. >> and dennis, you spent so many years trying to make this happen, do you think in retrospect, that the administration got off on the wrong foot with prime minister netenyahu, the cairo speech, not following it up perhaps and calling for the settlement freeze in yea
been another president, george w. bush or even bill clinton it would have been handled differently by the media, not by you, but by the mainstream media. and so it really does appear to be kind of a double standard and he gets a pass and so i guess after a while you just get used to it, and think why should i bother? >> a lot of criticism of him when he was running for president in 2008 and illinois senate voting present and not sort of wanting to be part of the process and putting his name on the line for some things and somehow does reflect it, but i think you're lucky if your political opponent doesn't want to participate you don't have to worry about getting noise or any of his positions or any of his views, something else you might not want. >> well, this is not optional, this is legally required and to me, the president, like all of us, take an oath to uphold the constitution and laws of the united states and you don't get to pick and choose. so, whether you want to or not, whether it's advantageous or not, i think he's obligated to do it and he hadn't done it. >> greta: one
. >> right. >> chris: which president clinton signed in 1996. which bans federal marital benefits for same sex couples who are legally married in their states. you have acknowledged states have the right to declare, to decide that same sex marriage is legal. as a conservative, isn't marriage a state issue and, therefore, should federal interference, wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> well, i don't think so. and near did a democratic president and overwhelming -- >> he changed his mine, though. >> of course a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full-court blitz of -- blitz by the popular culture, by elites and all kinds of folks to intimidate and to cower people into no longer defending marriage between a -- >> let me bring -- go ahead, nicole. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces, not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base, self-describing evangelical christians, under the age of 33, support marriage equality. 80% of people in the country, right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage
passed gay marriage in 1993, president clinton decided to make sure that each state -- again, larry, states' rights -- that washington intervene and say states have the right to not recognize marriages if the people in that state don't believe in that. this has always been a fact. the other thing, "the wall street journal" made a very important point in their very strong editorial today, saying the supreme court should really hold against these two cases. they said, how can you tell millions of americans that they're deeply held moral beliefs are bigotry. >> do we want a legal, judicial decision here, or do you want a political decision? >> right. zb we just got a political decision in the obama health care case, and roe v. wade was also a political decision, which they wanted the right, it was an incorrect decision. >> the right to marry is fundamental. the constitution of the supreme court has repeatedly recognized that. the idea that you can't compare that to loving versus virginia, kelly ann, is wrong because the issue is about marriage. the issue is about marriage, and the cour

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a seriou
, 185 different welfare programs and block grants the largest and most expensive ones just as clinton did with aid to families with children. we have this reform of entitlement and reform of these welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25% and the bottom rate to 10%. now we go from 10 up to 44 and the corporate rate which is 35% right now. the average in europe is 25 so we compete internationally. we tax our companies and our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. we want to take that rate to 25. i would rather be better than europe and the canadians are at 17%. i preferred the canadian rate than the european average so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. there is also a third budget which is the congressional budget which is more liberal democrats and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed. you have a sense of there are some democrats who want to go even further into big government and patty than patty murray and president obama. >> host: americans for tax reform is best known
clinton herself said. jon: ambassador john bolton. aaron david miller, general jack keane, we have to say good-bye. thank you for your insight. just goes to show why this is such a thorny area of the world. thank you all. >> appreciate it. jon: the, video you were seeing there in that very small country an illustration how tiny israel is. president obama has already arrived at the home the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, where with his left-handed signature there you see he is signing the guest book. there is prime minister netanyahu. jenna: trying to make out the words just to see what he is signing? jon: would be interesting to see what he is, good close-up by the camera crew but we don't know exactly what he is saying. at any rate the president on his first visit to israel as president. we will continue our coverage in just a moment. >> announcer: you never know when, but thieves can steal your identity and turn your life upside down. >> hi. >> hi. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >> you just read my mind. >> announcer: just one littl
on record now before these arguments, where they stand. hillary clinton this week, rob partman last week, a real moment. >> a historical, seminole moment where people feel the need to get on the record now. if you make a statement after next week, is that too late? >> i don't think so. if the catholic church is going to show movement, now would be the time. i think it's probably unlikely and certainly the majority of republicans in elected, political office are not yet supportive. but there is definitely much less polarization around this. >> and also a seminnother impor moment. john berman turned another year older. zoraida has the cakes. >> i took my mike off and i need to use yours. let me tell you, we got you this cake and i went to the back and had you two additional cakes. you are a very popular man. happy birthday. no candles. but you can pretend and make a wish. >> the different cakes, because the staff can't agree on what they like. >> velvet, oreo, and chocolate fudge. >> we have to pause so i can eat this. now to newsroom with carol cosstello, pretty please. >> happy birthday!
clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so deeply involved, we were both covering the white house in those days, in the camp david process and others, the israelis miss that, a guy who can draw the maps, president bush didn't get that involved. president obama hasn't gotten that involved. they're different people, personally and how they carry themselves politically and in their philosophies. the prime minister in cracking jokes when the president has landed is trying to say, i'm trying and now we'll see if the president is trying. >> we'll get back to jessica in a moment. tom foreman, this trip comes at a time when so many israelis feel increasingly vulnerable due in large part to the major political changes occurring in the region and their neighborhood. tom is taking a closer look at that region. what are you seeing, tom? >> john made references of being able to draw the map there. it is important to bear in mind the map here. look at where the president is visiting here, he's going to really a small part of a small area, but a very important part as you know, with stops
to president clinton. monica crowley radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors and welcome to both of you. tough, tough topic here. not yet confirmed. there are still fish shuns widespread, what to do if the red line is crossed publicly many times? it was not the first time. there was august of 2012. >> we've seen middle east dictators show no hesitation to use these chemical agents before. assad's own father used them. 40,000 syrians killed in hama. saddam hussein didn't hesitate to use chemical weapons against his own people and the iranian people. we know there is pattern in the middle east. the question is whether or not it actually happened here. when president obama talks about the red line being crossed, use of chemical agents if in fact that is proven would be the red line and i would believe provoke u.s. military intervention. bill: doug, what do you think?. >> i couldn't agree with monica more. let's be clear. this is the interest of the united states and our only stable democratic ally in the region, israel. israelis said, two ministers said yesterday they have definitiv
president clinton had seen president assad in geneva in january 1994. and prior to the trip, we had, you know, the prime minister conveyed to us what it is he wanted to see come out of it. and we actually produced what it is he wanted to see come out of it. so i walked into the meeting with rabin feeling highly confident, you know, all right, we did what you asked. and the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. now, why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. and if you go into these kinds of meetings and the expectations are very high, then each leader is suddenly worried about what you're going to ask of them. when the expectations are low, you're in a much better position to have a serious conversation, and you can actually explore, all right, what are the possibilities here. but maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about what are the consequences of not getting anything done with each side? and if the consequences are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible, and where could t
